DStv Premiership||Without Fans There's No Football' Says Cape Town City's Comitis

DStv Major League legend and Cape Town City CEO John Comitis says the gospel we all want to hear: "There is no football without fans."

It is true that the devastating COVID-19 pandemic has punished football and global society. But do DStv Premiership's decision makers support the return of stadium fans?

According to Cape Town CEO John Comitis, the league's disappointing delay in getting football fans back into stadiums to watch DStv Premier League killed off the game.

“Well, it's safe to say that we are left behind here. I think we need to take the initiative now and put a bit of pressure on the decision makers so we can get back to normal with the way we run football in this country," Komitis said on 2000 FM.

"Football without fans is not football, it is starting to affect the psyche of the players and the morale of the club," he added.

"Looks like we've just moved on, we feel like there's been training. Meanwhile stadiums around the world are full.

“If you look around the world, we have experienced what discipline we had in this bubble and how we managed to achieve it.

"I think we can run the event at 50% occupancy in the stadium in a very responsible way. And I think we have to start pressing the right buttons to get there."

Meanwhile, Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa rejected PSL's call to reopen stadiums to fans.

Although in the last two matches of Bafana Bafana and the final of MTN 8, the number of spectators allowed to enter the stadium is limited, the highest team has not opened its doors.

Some have asked for unlimited returns for PSL fans, with the club struggling after two years of playing without being able to bring in a receipt from the entrance.
